AFI have confirmed a new album is on the way.

The follow-up to 2017's 'AFI (The Blood Album)' and their 2018 EP 'The Missing Man' is called 'Bodies' and will be released on June 11 through Rise Records. It was produced by the band's guitarist Jade Puget and mixed by Tony Hoffer.

It will include the previously shared songs Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles, as well as the newly shared tracks Looking Tragic and Begging For Trouble.  Discussing the former, frontman Davey Havok said:

"'Looking Tragic' addresses the theme of overstimulation resulting in desensitization. Melodic and driving, the song came to life quickly and immediately stood out as a track to make bodies, if not sentiments, move."

"After years of receiving early versions of songs from Jade and Davey, in forms that span loosely arranged chords and scratch vocal to fully realized demos, I think I have become quite adept at knowing which songs will or will not make the record," added drummer Adam Carson.

"'Begging For Trouble' was green lit, at least in my mind, the moment I heard the vocals come in. To me, the track is a cornerstone of the new record."

Looking Tragic is a tongue in cheek garage rock-inspired number, while Begging For Trouble is a melodic punk-rock offering that recalls The Cure. Both tracks will feature on a limited edition 7" single that you can find out more about here.

'Bodies' tracklist:

  1. Twisted Tongues
  2. Far Too Near
  3. Dulcería
  4. On Your Back
  5. Escape From Los Angeles
  6. Begging For Trouble
  7. Back From The Flesh
  8. Looking Tragic
  9. Death Of The Party
  10. No Eyes
  11. Tied To A Tree
